Re: Randsomware industry
"What kind of regulations do you think would have an impact on the proliferation of ransomware". I do not have a specific example but monetary and jail time for the offenders would discourage it I would think.

"This is why I preferred the days of MS-DOS.". MS-DOS may also be used for randsomware, maybe easier in the command line actually I would say.

Re: Ransomware defense strategy
"Do vendors only see costs that they won't recoup?" I do not know the answer but this has become an industry going beyond vendors I say.

Re: Randsomware industry
Thanks for your comment, Dr. T. What kind of regulations do you think would have an impact on the proliferation of ransomware, or its infection rates?

Re: Ransomware defense strategy
"Vendors can fix this in software without involving the user". It may be hard to fix security problems with software solutions. It involves users at the end.

Re: Ransomware defense strategy
"Ransomware exists because we make computers with an interface non technical people can use" I agree, I also think preventing from randsomware is more non-technical than non-technical.

Re: Ransomware defense strategy
"The concept of ransomeware is insidious, not just that it encrypts but that it can be forwarded via email to all your email recipients." It makes sense, at the end of the day went something not accessible by owner so they can get money of it.

Randsomware industry
Randsomware has become a new industry, we need more regulations and accountability on it to keep it at minimum damage.
